CELESTIAL FIGS

Buy Celestial Figs: Please come see us at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market. Our stand is in front of Restaurant Lago, just below 3rd Street Promenade on Arizona avenue.

Description: Celestial is a green skinned, red fleshed variety, juicy with a hint of berry flavor. Because they have an open eye, they drip honey and do not keep as long as Mission figs.

Season: Mid August to September.

Size: 1 lb clamshells.

Suggested uses: Fresh eating, grilled, roasted, baked on tarts, used on salads, cheese platters, sorbets, preserves.

Shelf life: 3 days in your cooler for raw use, up to 5 days if you are cooking them.
